PREFACE. 


This  volume,  which  is  a  continuation  of  the  one  issued  by  the 
Society  in  1925,  brings  down  the  Register  of  Burgesses  and  Guild 
Brethren  of  Glasgow  from  the  \ear  1751  until  the  passing  of  the 
Act  of  Parliament  in  1846  [9  and  10  Vict.,  c.  17]  which  abolished 
the  exclusive  privilege  of  trading  in  the  Ko\'al  Burghs  of  Scotland. 

Prior  to  the  end  of  the  \'ear  1776  the  admissions  are  recorded 
in  the  minute  books  of  the  Dean  of  Guild,  which  are  now  in  the 
custody  of  the  Clerk  of  that  Court,  but  since  Januar}-  i,  1777,  a 
separate  Register,  reserved  exclusivel)'  for  the  purpose,  has  been 
kept  b}'  the  Town  Clerk. 

The  Registers  are  complete  for  the  period  covered  by  this 
volume  and  have  been  carefull\"  kept,  so  far  as  concerns  burgesses 
entering  by  hereditary  right  or  by  purchase,  but  no  record  has  been 
preserved  of  those  who  received  gratis  tickets  or  of  those  who 
were  honoured  with  the  freedom  of  the  Cit}'.  Their  number 
must  have  been  considerable,  and,  while  a  few  names  are  included 
in  the  Roll  printed  at  page  467,  no  attempt  has  been  made  to 
systematically  investigate  either  the  journals  or  newspapers  or  the 
private  and  public  repositories. 

For  several  years  after  1751  there  are  many  entries  of  persons 
admitted  on  the  nomination  of  the  Provost  or  other  civic  dignitary. 
According  to  custom,  this  was  a  privilege  granted  to  the  retiring 
Provost  and  Magistrates  at  Michaelmas  in  each  year,  four  burgesses 
being  named  by  the  Provost,  and  two  each  b\-  the  three  Bailies, 
the  Dean  of  Guild  and  the  Deacon  Convener,  The  practice 
continued  until  1780,  when  it  was  abolished  by  act  of  Council 
dated  May  17,  experience  having  shown  "that  the  disposal  of 
such  tickets  had  tended  to  increase  the  number  of  poor  on  tlie 
charity  funds  of  the  city." 

The  outbreak  of  the  American  Rebellion  in  1775  ^^'^'^  ^^^^  fall 
of  Saratoga  two  \-ears  later  filled  the  people  with  apprehension, 
and  Glasgow   was    one    of  several    cities    which    offered    to    raise 


iv  Prejace. 

regiments  at  their  own  expense  in  the  service  of  King  and 
Countr}-.  As  an  encouragement  for  young  men  to  enlist,  the 
Magistrates,  b}'  proclamation,  offered  to  all  who  attested  a  burgess 
ticket,  free  of  expense,  all  the  rights  and  privileges  of  a  burgess  to 
descend  to  their  wives  and  children.  Among  the  miscellaneous 
registers  entered  in  the  hiveutory  of  the  Records  of  the  City  of 
Glasgow  is  a  "  List  of  Persons  admitted  Burgesses  for  encouraging 
them  to  enlist  in  the  Glasgow  Regiment  of  Volunteers,  1788." 
Although  there  is  a  discrepanc}'  in  the  date,  there  is  little  doubt 
that  the  list  referred  to  is  the  muster  roll  of  the  Royal  Glasgow 
Volunteers,  afterwards  known  as  the  83rd  Foot,  but  unfortunately 
the  list  has  long  since  disappeared.  There  are  frequent  references 
to  such  enrolments  in  the  latter  part  of  the  Register.
